Photo of 2008 OSSC Annual Picnic at Norman's OrdhidsThe OSSC Annual Picnic will again be held at Norman's Orchids this year (11039 Monte Vista Avenue, Montclair) on Saturday, September 10th, 2011 starting at 11AM and ending around 3PM. This wonderful orchid nursery is located approximately 45 minutes east of Los Angeles and can be reached by several local freeways. Click here for an interactive map to the site.

This event is a potluck affair with a donation fee of $5.00 per person to pay for the main dish and the beverages. The members will provide the side dishes/salads and deserts. With the diverse nationalities of our members, this home made extravaganza is always a special treat. Whether there are Armenian pastries or Korean salads, the food is always wonderful and varied. The plant opportunity table will be provided by Norman's Orchids. Visit their web site (www.orchids.com) if you wish to know more about what they offer for sale and what might be available on the opportunity table. Additionally, OSSC picnic participant purchases made at Norman’s Orchids the day of the picnic will receive a 10% discount. Picnic Checklist

This year we are again tracking the side dishes people are planning to bring, and you can check the list out online. Anyone who wishes to come out and enjoy Norman's beautiful nursery and plants can be assured that bringing your favorite dish will be welcome - whichever category it falls into. Do remember to bring serving pieces for your food as the folks at Norman's do not have a big kitchen. If past picnics are any indication, there will be left over food that we will all want to bring home with us. Remember to bring a small container for any leftovers you may wish have.

Car pooling is a great idea as well, but the ride is short and the entire trip  takes only 1/4 tank of gas. Please remember that you can sign up at the  August 8 meeting. If you didn't attend the August meeting, please contact our 2nd Vice President directly - he's listed in the OSSC roster and the OSSC Organization page - with the number of people in your group and what you will be bringing for a side dish no later than August 25th. There will be no regular meeting during the month of September as the picnic takes its place. Hope to see you there!
